Lobby Day 2008

Public Employee Lobby Day details at the State Capitol this President's Day, February 18. Legislators need to hear from you!
Details and Legislative agenda here.

Over 100 AFSCME West Virginia activists meet and rally at the state capitol on President's Day Holiday as they have for 20 years.

Over 100 AFSCME West Virginia activists meet and rally at the state capitol on President's Day Holiday as they have for 20 years. State and municipal employees met with key Senators and Delegates in the East Wing training/conference room. Senators Hunter and Wells along with Delegates DeLong, Caputo, Poling and Peoples-Guthrie all spoke to members and answered questions.

The entire group then went to an up close and personal meeting with Governor Manchin in the reception area just outside his office. As another group spouted rumors and idle threats down the hall, AFSCME members turned a planned 15 minute meeting with a couple of questions into an almost hour long meeting with West Virginia's Governor during which he answered every question asked.

AFSCME members then converged on the Legislators in their offices to discuss pay issues, increment pay, PEIA improvements and other bills of importance with guidance from AFSCME's lobbyists.
